For those unable to get a free unlock via the Vodafone unlocking website and intending to use the SamUnlock tool. Be aware that on 21/11,...

Available through a number of different resellers, but the only one I've used is https://www.fonefunshop.com/sam-unlock-server.html

Yes, that's the one

Knox is tripped/triggered when you *root* the phone. Out of the box, all the current Galaxy S and A series phones have Knox. If you haven't...

The Sam Unlock tool now does work with the newer bootloaders. Helped a colleague unlock one with a 20xx IMEI and U2 bootloader yesterday

I've tried getting unlock codes from the Vodafone unlock site for the two U1 bootloader phones I got from Big W with serial numbers...

Great! So we know now that those up to serial numbers starting with 14 are U1 bootloaders and can be unlocked easily. Those starting with...

We'll have to wait for some other people to report in with serial number and bootloader version.
03/09/2019 - 10:11
Are you able to check the bootloader version (see above - Settings / About Phone / Software Info - look up the Baseband version to see what...

NFC, B28 and Wifi Calling all tested and work well. I don't use Snapchat, but my daughter is an avid Snapchat user, and she says that the...

This is purely a guess, but I would think that a serial number starting with 05 is an even earlier batch than those from Big W, and...

If this is the same as the Big W version from two weeks previous, it has a standard Samsung boot logo, with no Vodafone customisations. The...

If you have the U1 bootloader, GBP 3 using [SamUnlock](https://www.fonefunshop.com/sam-unlock-server.html), there are detailed discussions...

Yes. From the box outside, look at the IMEI. The IMEI has the form 356776/10/xxxxxx/y where xxxxxx is the serial number of the phone. If...

Discussion at [GSMHosting](http://forum.gsmhosting.com/vbb/f898/). You'll be looking for discussion about any of the A series phones and...

Haven't heard anything, but I'm not keeping in contact with the developer (only had that initial brief contact to do some testing for him...

Have you checked the bootloader version? At present, it is only the U1 version bootloader that can be unlocked. The U2 bootloader doesn't...

You mean you ordered a license key for the unlocker software? When I ordered mine it took about 3 0 minutes to get the email with the...
26/08/2019 - 14:30
I think it's pretty conclusive then. The earlier serial numbers (in the 11x range) are ok, but the later ones (15x and above) have the U2...
25/08/2019 - 11:54
Apologies people - I made a typo..The three I unlocked do start with 3567, not 3557. I think it's the serial number that matters here. The...
25/08/2019 - 05:54
So, the newer batch might have a U2 bootloader? I helped someone last night who bought one yesterday when stocks came back in (bought from...

PC. Everything runs on the PC, and the phone is connected to the PC via USB.
24/08/2019 - 13:05
I've just checked with my granddaughter. She has a U1 bootloader, February security patch level, and hasn't installed any updates. I've...
18/08/2019 - 12:12
Easiest is probably to install an app like Phone Info Samsung, and look up the firmware tab. There'll be an entry called bootloader, and in...

I've been able to do some testing with a couple of people from here, plus had a conversation with the developer. It appears that the issue...

Flashed the XSA firmware using Odin. VoWifi and VoLTE are now working with the Telstra SIM.
17/08/2019 - 12:33
Just had a close look at the screen capture you sent last night. The only difference I can see with the versions is that I did my unlock...

Mine is definitely the SM-A205YN. I believe all the Australian models are YN, so it should work perfectly fine. There's some other issue at...
